4924 refers to the store number of the Stanwix Sainsbury’s Local supermarket. 4924 documents the Sainsbury’s supermarket during the current Covid-19 pandemic. The World Health Organisation declared Covid-19 as a worldwide pandemic on the 11/03/20 and it has had an enormous impact on countries all over the world. Supermarkets have had to change the way in which they operate in order to minimise the spread of the coronavirus.
4924 looks at the way in which Sainsbury’s have changed shopping during lockdown, whether that’s the way colleagues must work or how customers now must shop. New measures have been put in place to protect colleague and customer safety during the pandemic following guidelines given out by the government.
Colleagues during the current pandemic are putting themselves and their families at risk daily by continuing to work as they are classed as key workers. Non key workers are being told to stay home unless it is for daily exercise or essential shopping. They are therefore less at risk. For many key workers they would rather be at home where they are safe. However, they continue to do their bit in order to help others. 4924 documents life inside a supermarket from the store to the colleagues working there.
